Review: Ozark Season 1 Episode 7 “Nest Box”

Despite some brilliantly written sequences that showcase both Marty’s skill as a manipulator and salesman, and the intense toll his activities are having on him, bolstered by superb performances by Jason Bateman and Laura Linney, nothing seems to be being accomplished on this show. Sure, Marty is slowly getting through the cash and he finds some success here, but the show’s structure in this regard seems circular, dashing between an uphill battle and luck, with something needing to occur to really increase the tension. It looks like there will be climaxing culmination of storylines between the FBI and Ruth’s plan, but I hope it won’t be as predictable as the set-up seems. 7.6/10
